Acco is a student cooperation which got form in the second half of the fifties in the shadows of the KU Leuven. Our aim was to lower the treshold to the university.
We were officialy established in 1960 as a cooperation. The immediate reason for this was the 1960 law on higher education, which subsidized housing and restoration but did not subsidize study material and course books.
We stayed true to our history and both alumni and students participate in our Board of Directors.Our mission remains unchanged: our passion to spread knowledge by creating and distributing study material and scientific works.
